OMG, OMG, OMG!!! I haven't done more than check out the squishies & browse the pattern- but I am EXCITED to work on this shawl! I LOVE that the sections of the pattern are named after OUTSTANDING ladies. And the yarn colors are wonderfully saturated & vibrant. I think I'd better get to caking this yarn... (BTW - Hope y'all don't mind if I IG this
